We are into the second round matches tonight at Winston Salem and New Haven and again there's plenty of action this evening with 14 ATP matches and 4 WTA matches on the schedule, which starts at 5pm UK time.
Since starting the 'recommended trades' feature, I've been adding a review of those trades and here's the review of Monday's recommendations.
